From the article:
"For the human body, though, the whole is much more than the sum of its parts. . . as if the body was designed specifically to enable the mind: thought, language, love, nobility, self-sacrifice, art, creativity, industry, and my favorite enigma (for Darwinists): music. The human body enables these things, but does not determine them. As near as we can tell, no combination of the body’s substrate — information, machinery, or operations — alone can achieve these things. . . "
The whole is the unity that is the person - you and I, everyone we meet - one perceiving, feeling, thinking being who acts as a participant in all creation, ultimately in relation to God.
“I maintain that the human mystery is incredibly demeaned by scientific reductionism, with its claim in promissory materialism to account eventually for all of the spiritual world in terms of patterns of neuronal activity. This belief must be classed as a superstition . . . . we have to recognize that we are spiritual beings with souls existing in a spiritual world as well as material beings with bodies and brains existing in a material world.” —Sir John C. Eccles (1903–1997)
